Fortunately, there is a way to help lower the amount of damage that is caused by substantial flooding due to burst pipes and malfunctioning appliances in your home by using leakSMART.
What Is leakSMART?
leakSMART is a technology that helps to catch leaks that are present in your plumbing or water-based appliances. Sensors can be placed around your home and your homes appliances and fixtures such as your dish washer, washing machine, HVAC unit, toilets, and hot water heater which will detect moisture. When leakSMART senses a leak it will send a signal to shut off your water main in 5 seconds or less, protecting you from disastrous water damage. The sensor will trigger the main water valve to your home to shut closed, and you will be alerted through your smart phone that moisture has been detected and that your homes main shut off valve has been closed. By turning off your main water valve, this decreases the amount of water that can leak into your home unnoticed.
